I really enjoyed this story. Even though it didn't have a lot of action, it did have quite a bit of mystery. Enough to keep me interested to read what was going to happen next.

It seems like this book is part of series starring, Bethany and Starling, as it mentions the scene where these characters mentioned about being trapped during snowstorm with their teacher having heart attack. I never read the other books, but I still enjoyed the book.

I'm not much into romance books but this book is mostly romance with sprinkle of horror elements. In the beginning, the characters are in situations that aren't too scary, until later on.

For the romance part, I actually enjoyed a b

Ah yes, nostalgia, you are probably clouding my judgement, but who gives a diggity damn?

Starling was great. A young man with an eidetic memory and glasses, who's the boyfriend of our main character. Bethany was dull in comparison, the straight man of the story. I guess the goal of teen books is to let you pretend you're the main character, but I am not sure this story could use a gay love triangle.

Well, I say love triangle, but it's more "dude is stalking me" situation. He even breaks into her h

This book is like a half horror, half love story. I just love to read this over and over and over again. But, sometimes, I just get the goosebumps when I read the pages before the ending. Jand McFann wrote with a good sense of balance to this book. Believe me, there are always corny scenes in a horror/romantic story. Luckily, the scene is the ending, about the last few pages. But, it's a sweet, corny ending.

I read this book a long time ago but still own it. I think that it's a very mismarketed book. It's supposed to be horror, but it's really psychological suspense. It's about a stalker with psychological problems not really a slasher book. For those of you who have read it I am sure you get what I'm saying. It's definitely marketed in the wrong genre.

I was absolutely enthralled by this book. It keeps you on edge no matter how many times you read it. On several ocassions, I retell the story to my dear family and friends. I always love how at the end they realize just how into the story they were. Sadly none could find the book in stores and I was beyond devastated when I found out that while I was moving my copy seems to have been misplaced.

Overall good, but too much time dedicated to pointless drivel instead of building to the suspense and horror. The "villain" was a complete let down in all ways and totally seemed thrown-in. A decent read, but don't expect anything fabulous.

Oh my goodness! I read this book a minimum of like twenty times when I was a teenager. I was obsessed sort of like Bethany's Secret Admirer. Such a classic!
